MEDIA REVIEWS

A slick and super-satisfying sequel with kidnap, card tricks and the coolest train carriage ever! - Ross Montgomery, author of Perijee and Me

Wildly funny, with hairpin plot bends and inventive characters, this series is firmly on track to become a bestseller. - Daily Mail

I have a station announcement: their collaboration is a chuffing triumph. Fans of Agatha Christie, or, more recently, Robin Stevens and Katherine Woodfine, should adore this mystery which makes a steam trail all of its own. - Alex O'Connell, The Times Children's Book of the Week

With the Highland Falcon Thief, M. G. Leonard and Sam Sedgman bring the classic mystery on a train bang up to date with a carriage-load of wit and suspense - Ross Welford, author of Time Travelling with a Hamster on The Highland Falcon Thief

A brilliant adventure, packed with blackmail, red herrings and silver superliners! - Mitch Johnson

With a cast of delightfully dubious characters who are all potential suspects, Kidnap on the California Comet will keep readers guessing and reading on to enjoy the developing friendships and follow the red herrings across the USA, to a satisfying conclusion. There are plenty of notes at the back for train fans, and the book may therefore appeal especially to vehicle-obsessed children who are looking for a longer book with a clear plot to follow - BookTrust
